Little ditty, about Jack and Diane
Two American kids growin' up, in the heartland
Jackie gonna be a football star
Diane's the debutante backseat of Jackie's car

Suckin' on a chili dog, outside the Tastee Freez
Diane's sittin' on Jackie's lap
He's got his hands between her knees
Jackie say, "Hey Diane let's run off behind a shady tree"
Dribble off those Bobby Brooks, let me do what I please
And say uh...

Oh yeah life goes on
Long after the thrill of livin' is gone, they say
Oh yeah say life goes on
Long after the thrill of livin' is gone, they walk on

Jackie sits back collects his thoughts for the moment
Scratches his head and does his best James Dean
Well then there Diane, we oughta run off to the city
Diane says, "Baby, you ain't missin' nothing"
And Jackie say uh...

Oh yeah life goes on
Long after the thrill of livin' is gone
Oh yeah they say life goes on
Long after the thrill of livin' is gone

So let it rock
Let it roll
Let the Bible Belt come and save my soul
Hold on to 16 as long as you can
Changes come around real soon
Make us women and men

Oh yeah life goes on
Long after the thrill of livin' is gone,
Oh yeah they say life goes on
Long after the thrill of livin' is gone

A little ditty about Jack and Diane
Two American kids doin' the best they can
